On a plateau, 50 metres above sea level, Vanira Lodge has an amazing 180°view over the lagoon. Surfers will appreciate waking and being able to assess the waves in each of the 3 Teahupoo surf spots from their bungalow.
 
On the leeward coast of the peninsular and facing the sunset, Teahupoo is a small village "off the beaten track" and at the end of the road that travels from Papeete right down to the opposite end of the island. The road becomes a walking track along the water's edge that takes you to the cliffs of Pari and the vast forest and coastal area. At the end of the road is another favourite spot - the black sand beach at the rivermouth where children can go boogie-boarding.
 
Teahupoo village is home to one of the most infamous waves in the world and has become important in international surf competitions - in particular the Billabong Pro, which brings together the top surfers in the world. They come from all corners of the earth to confront the legendary wave.
 
Nestled into the mountain with natural boundaries, the 2 hectare park which holds Vanira Lodge offers enough space to ensure the tranquility of each bungalow. There are many tropical fruit trees planted around the park, a small waterfall & pond which provides a home for goldfish and a playground for ducks, with plenty of room left over for a game of soccer or footy with the boys if you travel with a group of friends.
 
The beauty of the view back over the mountains is equal to that over the water, and the sunsets are magnificent!
